    A few miles from our school, we have one of the prettiest places in North Carolina.  It is the Lumber River State Park.  It is great for hiking, boating, fishing (you will need a NC Fishing license), canoeing, and just viewing the beauty of nature.  There are many trails that lead through the woods and wind around the river.  The views are majestic.
     
    Lumber River State Park contains 7,936 acres of land and 115 miles of state natural and scenic waters, 81 miles of which are also designated national wild and scenic waters. The park's recreation activities are currently centered at the Princess Ann Access, which includes a reverse flow area named Griffin's Whirl. At the access, a bend in the river opens to a long, straight vista that beckons paddlers to take a ride.
     
    Below we have included a few pictures of the park:
